In the grand scheme of things, this is a kind of silly, pointless rant. But I'm frustrated and want to rant....

My last appointment was the anatomy scan at 19w5d. I made my next appointment for 24w1d with a different doctor than normal because mine is out on medical leave this month. It worked out great because my step-mom was in town and she was able to stay home with the kids. I showed up at the appointment and was told that she was running 30 minutes behind. Okay, that's fine. After waiting 15-20 minutes the receptionist comes up and tells me that the doctor is now 1 hour behind. Which meant I wouldn't be home until probably after 5pm and we had dinner reservations to go out for my step-mom's birthday at 5:30.

So I rescheduled for today (25w0d). Kind of annoyed that I was going to have to wait a little 5 weeks for follow up about the new anti-depressant I'm taking, but whatever. I just got a call (about 1.5 hours before the appointment) that my appointment is cancelled because she had a patient with scheduled surgery that morning that kept getting delayed. So I have to reschedule. Again.

Luckily my own doctor is back on Monday, so I have an appoint now for Monday (25w4d) with her. It will be now 6 weeks before I get a follow up on the medication, which is now causing a weird side effect of (TMI) diarrhea. I have no scale so I can't see if this is causing weight loss (hard to imagine is isn't with how bad it is) until Monday.

I don't think it's silly or pointless. It's frustrating to keep changing Dr appointment when it's a follow to something that it's of a concern, like anti-depressants. Sorry about the side effect

UGH, how frustrating! I love how, if you are late for an appt by 10 or so minutes, they cancel it on you, but making you wait, granted sometimes they can't help it, is okay...

I agree with the other ladies! You have every right to be frustrated!!! I hope that they keep your appt for Monday and that your side effect goes away!

That is frustrating. Glad you were able to get in sooner than they wanted you in.
